Hey there, Bleeps! I’m missing CHA, so here’s a card for all of my friends I saw in California! Miss ya’ll already! This card is a ‘publication reject!’ Sometimes, the cards I submit for publication do not get picked up. The good thing about getting rejected is that I get to still share them here with my Bleeps! Most times when I submit, I get rejections. I am okay with that because I understand that publishers are selective about the projects shown in their publications for a variety of reasons, from color combinations to design elements. It does not mean that the project is not good. Sometimes, a card presented for one publication is rejected, but accepted for another because the it fits a different publication better (this could be the same publisher). I just wanted to share a bit about my publishing experiences. It’s a job. I have fun submitting every month. You just have to try.
